WooCommerce - Single image for multiple products
Something that I've run into during my present project was the inability to attach an existing image from either my media library or NextGEN gallery to multiple products. So, I have to upload the same image multiple times, taking up my time and server space.
That or, another way to attach images to a product from your media library, or even better, your NextGen Gallery. The wordpress media library with a large amount of files is a joke to work with.

Am I missing something here? Woo allows for an image to be re-used for as many products as you wish, no need to duplicate in Media Library.
For bulk assigning of image to products I use WP All Import (where I can specify an existing image filename from media library).
For the person asking whether 1 image could be used to sell multiple products - yes, with "grouped"products, where you can group multiple products one page; eg an outfit (blouse, skirt, blazer).
Hi I also need to associate 1 uploaded image to 2000 products, but I saw no option to do that. No any plugin. The cited here link to file-gallery plugin is also not helping as the plugin doesn't work on the last version of WP on 09.08.2019 and also I did't see option in the settings to do that.
Has anyone figured this out yet ?
I need a plugin that will alow me to attach a single image to all my products in the product gallery. I have over 1000 products on my site and need help !
I'm wondering if one image could sell multiple items. For example, I put up the image of a lady wearing a blouse, skirt and a blazer. Say I want to show my client the look but give them the option of buying all three items or just one item, how do I go about it without putting up the same image 3 times?
One image- Blazer- $10, Blouse $6, Skirt $7
Customer clicks what he wants without having to buy all three and me not needing to put up 3 images

Would be nice to assign a single image to multiple products in bulk

WP All Import plugin solved this for my use case scenario for this exact problem. The release that includes this (don't create multiple imagexx1, xx2, xx3, etc) is in beta as of posting, but will probably be released soon. Very stable plugin works great, handles variations, etc.
I have found this to work. Would still be better to have it built in, but this plugin is great!!!
Please please fix this. This is very frustrating. When working with lots of products with small variations that look the same this is a nightmare. I mean, I get like 20 images with the name xxx1.jpg xxx2.jpg and so on. Not very user friendly and as stated earlier, takes up a lot of space on the server and is time consuming to upload images every time!
I have the same issue - is there a work around for this? Should be able to choose items from the library to add to the product image gallery
I am having the same issue. Anybody have anything on this?
